hi all.
i want to get Tom Delonge's tone for this song but i dont know his amp settings.
i have a Vox VT20+.
Thanks for your time.

I don't think this is the best place to ask about amp settings. Figure out what amp Tom Delonge uses and use a similar amp model. Then just start tweaking the knobs. Remember that you can't get exactly the same tone so just try to find something that's close enough and works for the song. I don't really see a point in trying to get exactly the same tone as somebody else. First of all, it's not possible. And also, you can play the song, even if your tone is not the same as in the original version.

It's not, i'm moving it. MT is for the mental aspect of music, to put it in one sentence.

AAAAAAND YOU'VE GOTTA BE KIDDING ME.

I done gone and misclicked. This isn't where it belongs either, hopefully a mod can re-re-direct it.

Well, to answer the question, I believe he used a Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier in that period, so something fairly high gain, but keep the gain medium. Let the guitar push the amp a bit.

He used a Dual Rectifier with his signature strat that was loaded with a Duncan Invader. As far as replicating that with a Vox VT, I can't help you there.

i'd try the mesa dual rectifier model (US metal? that's what it is on the mini 3), or maybe the soldano model (US high gain) if that's too metal-sounding. use your bridge humbucker (assuming your guitar has one), guitar volume and tone knobs on full.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
